Mitch McConnell kept his surprise secret, as other Republican Senators knew nothing of the offer to Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY).
Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) took to the Senate floor to blast the deal, saying, “I believe Democratic Leader Schumer was on the verge of surrendering and then, unfortunately … Republicans blinked. I think that was a mistake.”

His shenanigans will clearly leave him alone. And there’s nothing to be accomplished as a loner wolf especially in politics.
